What makes Japanese whisky “Japanese”? That is the question award-winning author and whisky expert Dave Broom set out to answer in his book, The Way of Whisky: A Journey Around Japanese Whisky. Broom’s journey took him to distilleries across Japan, where he uncovered how Japanese craftsmanship, customs, and nature combine to make these fine whiskies so unique.

In this YouTube clip, Broom introduces some of the best Japanese whisky on the market.

Discover the subtle characteristics of this finely crafted spirit and the role Japan’s traditional arts play in its production and appreciation. Noah Rothbaum, editor of The Daily Beast‘s Drink + Food section, will moderate the talk, which will be followed by a book signing reception.

You can read an excerpt from Broom’s book in The Daily Beast here.
